TORC Robotics and Caterpillar offer the RemoteTask remote control system for Cat D Series Skid Steer, Multi Terrain and Compact Track Loaders. The RemoteTask system enables operators to control the machines from outside the cab—as far away as 1,000 feet and at a safe distance from potentially hazardous tasks and environments.

The RemoteTask controls are designed to eliminate lag in machine response time and be as fast and smooth as in-cab operation. The remote control interface is designed to closely mimic in-cab machine controls, creating an easy operator transition from manual to remote operation.

It takes about an hour for a Cat dealer to install the RemoteTask system. With the system installed, the machine can transition from manual to remote mode at the turn of a key switch. The system is transferrable between units.

The console allows the operator to move as needed for good lines of sight. RemoteTask can be integrated into 16 models of Cat D Series Skid Steer, Multi Terrain and Compact Track Loaders and can control more than 200 work tools with all hydraulic functions controlled via the remote system.
